A FEW SIMPLE DIRECTIONS FOR THE MIXING OF COLORS 
ARRANGED BY WINSOR & NEWTON 

This List concerns both Oil and Water Colors, but with the former Flake White must of course be added in almost 
every case. Where White is mentioned, it means that Chinese White is worth adding to the water color combination to 
make it tell. 

These mixtures are simply hints showing how any particular shade may be arrived at; the sketcher will make it cooler 
or warmer by increasing the blue or yellow as he thinks fit. For instance, he would never use exactly the same combi- 
nation of colors to paint the grass of a field seen at ten o'clock in the morning as he would that seen at four o'clock in 
the afternoon.

PERM ALB A— An Artists' Permanent White, Per Tube $ .60 



In Permalba, we believe to have attained chemical and 
physical properties, not possessed by any other opaque 
White pigment. 

Permalba has been accepted only after having under- 
gone an experimental stage, extending over a number of 
years, in which the following characteristics have been 
developed : 

Permalba does not contain any Lead or Zinc. 

Permalba will not discolor with age. 

Permalba remains unaffected upon exposure to light, 
impure air, and gases. 

Permalba is chem ically stable and inert towards all other 
pigments in mixtures. 



Permalba is unaffected by any vehicles or mediums of 
any painting technique. 

Permalba with colors, yields tints of true color value, 
with exceptional brilliancy. 

Permalba does not affect and is itself not affected in mix- 
tures with any other pigment. 

Permalba Oil Color is of smooth buttery consistency 
yielding an elastic film after complete oxidization 
(drying) of the oil, with no tendency to crack or become 
horny and friable, and if finally protected by an appli- 
cation of varnish, an unalterable result is assured.

Velvetex is a high class Tempera Color for Poster Designing. We 
can recommend it highly to commercial artists and for school and college 
work. The colors are brilliant and durable and will dry with a beautiful 
mat surface. To keep fresh when not in use, allow a little water to stand 
on the surface, pouring it off before using.
